Francis gives boost to free-market cause?

Did so two days ago, maybe:

Vatican City, Nov 7, 2018 / 04:47 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Pope Francis spoke of the need for creative entrepreneurship in the face of “scandalous poverty” Wednesday, stressing the importance of generosity with one’s possessions.

“If there is hunger on earth, it is not because food is missing!” Pope Francis said in St. Peter’s Square Nov. 7.

“What is lacking is a free and far-sighted entrepreneurship, which ensures adequate production, and a solidarity approach, which ensures fair distribution,” he continued.

Free? From what?

Ensures adequate production? Well, nothing ensures anything. He should know that. But it does a lot towards that goal, more than any un-free system on the face of God’s green earth.

Ensures fair distribution? No it doesn’t (as above). Nothing does. What’s this fair distribution business anyway? Ensured by whom or what?

Fuzzy-wuzzy talk. This pontiff is good at it.
